Open knowledge uses open licenses or a public domain declaration to ensure free access to and ability to modify a knowledge resource for any purpose. The term free knowledge is sometimes used to emphasize the freedoms given (similar to the Software freedoms).

Examples of open knowledge projects include Appropedia and Wikipedia. By choosing a Creative Commons license or public domain declaration[1] for their website, an individual or organization can contribute to the body of available open knowledge.

By participating in Appropedia's porting project, you can contribute to making open knowledge available in an open edit form on this wiki.
